    @huffy: I think you may need to send the unit back to be reset. Have you tried opening the case up to look for a BIOS reset jumper?

    Thanks for your reply, I think opening the case might void the warranty. Not to worry I'll get the unit returned to our supplier, perhaps they can flash the BIOS for us.

    Cheers

    Opening the case and removing the CMOS battery for a few hours does the trick. Didnt notice any way of them detecting that they've been opened.

    Anybody had any more success with these thin clients? I know HP have released a new image for the t5135 but it still doesnt seem to work with altiris, the new image does seem a bit better however. Still doesnt seem to make up for the fact the mangleability scripts dont work though.

    That dont sound too good! I've not had any problems with ours, except the obvious issue with altiris and image deployment. We've got 130 currently in place and none of ours have gone bang yet!

    Re: Altiris

    A quick note... HP have changed their product range again but the new t5725 will deploy sensibly with Altiris. These are a little more expensive although Novus have just given me a good price. The terminals are also on 3 for 2 until the end of the month!!!

    I can't find any mention of a 3 for the price of 2 offer on the HP site Ric_. How much are Novus charging you for them?
